Only use this guide when you want to run SmartNode.
When you don't want to run SmartNode we recommend you to use Electrum-Smart Wallet and skip the rest this guide because it don't require to sync. In case you still want to use QT wallet for non SmartNode just follow the guide
If you just want to attempt to get your client up to speed and on the right chain, we providing a bootstrap data file below. This is NOT a snapshot! Using this bootstrap will still require the wallet client to verify and validate all of the data contained within
Steps to use the bootstrap:
Step 1. Stop/shutdown your wallet client if it is running.
Step 2.Delete the 'blocks' and 'chainstate' folders from your data directory. (The data directory can be found in these locations depending on your OS)
Step 3.Download the bootstrap from https://bitcoinconfidential.cc/txindexstrap.zip. ( it only works with sapi=0 in the smartcash.conf)
Step 4.Extract the downloaded zip file
Step 5.Place the extracted
bootstrap file in your data directory (Just replace your blocks and chainstate folders with these ones)
Step 6.Start your wallet client.
When your wallet client starts up, you will notice that it begins processing the blocks contained within the
bootstrap.dat file. This can be verified when using the GUI wallet as it will say (in the bottom left)
Importing blocks from disk.... During this process, network connectivity is NOT required.
P/s: from version v1.2.0 txindex are automatic enabled so don't have to put txindex=1 in smartcash.conf manualy
If your desktop node client or VPS node is slow to sync or does not sync a node list you can manually add additional peers to speed things up. This should help alleviate any 1.2.8 migration pains issues. You can paste the following commands in your terminal/putty/console to add peers on your node:
smartcash-cli addnode 220.127.116.11 add
smartcash-cli addnode 18.104.22.168 add
smartcash-cli addnode 22.214.171.124 add
smartcash-cli addnode 126.96.36.199 add
smartcash-cli addnode 188.8.131.52 add
smartcash-cli addnode 184.108.40.206 add
smartcash-cli addnode 220.127.116.11 add
smartcash-cli addnode 18.104.22.168 add
In the deskop node client, you can add peers through the console on the debug window by pasting the following commands one by one:
addnode 22.214.171.124 add
addnode 126.96.36.199 add
addnode 188.8.131.52 add
addnode 184.108.40.206 add
addnode 220.127.116.11 add
addnode 18.104.22.168 add
addnode 22.214.171.124 add
addnode 126.96.36.199 add
